worst riding conditions?

what conditions do you hate the most. for me its fog. fog isnt like rain because it beads up on the lens but doesnt hed like a downpour. and makes it really hard to see at night. and slowly soaks you anyway.

You asked what were the worst riding conditions.

fog/mist is for sure the most dangerous...(at least I think so)
fog makes the road super slick, especially asphalt, and screws with your vision as well.

Although riding in an absolute down pour sucks , I've always found that traction isn't as bad as that first little bit of moisture on the roadway.

and I too just got back from a short ride.

i would go with rain. i ride with mirrored visors and the mist that is kicked up by the cars combined with the oil on the ground blows. got caught in a downpour and couldnt do a thing. all my gear was soaked and so was my bag that i keep a towel in.

Definitely fog.

Rain normally isn't so bad... unless you're caught in it on a Houston highway. Then you have to contend with idiot cagers screaming in and out of traffic, through all the road spray, only to come up on your barely visible tail lights as they barely miss or outright run you over.
